black toddler hair growth

My toddler is 1 years old and her hair is nappy and wont grow do I have anything to worry about? I've tried using everything from baby shampoo and conditioner to olive oil and brushing it 40 times a day. I was wondering if I can use Pantene shampoo and conditioner to soften it so it wont look so bad because it's sooo nappy and really bald. HELP!!!

stop brushing it so much! once or twice a day max.

Yes you can use regular shampoo on her just make sure you do not get it in her eyes because it will hurt. Try looking for shampoo with coenzyme Q10. It helps with hair growth. I've used regular shampoo on my baby since 9 months. Johnson and johnson actually was making her hair fall out and might be your problem also.

I've head massaging the head makes the hair grow faster. not sure if it's true but it does make sense.

Other than that just be patient, it will grow. My one daughter was 2 before I had enough hair to do a small pigtail.
